|Does anyone here have any actual experience growing the large flowering hyacinths near a black walnut tree - - to warn me against.|
I wasn't planning to, but bought some Hyacinth bulbs on clearance at Menards. I'm not really into planting them, but just recently moved a short row of peonies that seemed to be affected by the black walnut tree. When I had originally planted the peonies 10 or more years ago, the walnut tree wasn't as tall and leaning.
To save having to do a lot more digging, I'd love to just plant the hyacinth bulbs where the peonies were.

|It has been several years, but at my previous home there were black walnuts all around and one in a large bed. I had hyacinths and other bulbs in that bed and they didn't appear to be bothered. |

|Thanks Neal. I know my daffodils don't seem to mind. Some plants are real fussy about it, and others are not. Even the peonies tolerated it, but I could see a decline in the plants, and they didn't bloom anything like the ones at the other end of the garden. I guess I will soon find out. I know I will look forward to the blooms in the spring.|
